February’s snow and ice storm was a reminder for everyone that regular maintenance on your home is critical to your comfort and safety – especially in times of crisis. This is also true if you own or operate a commercial business. Closure due to a plumbing problem not only costs you money in repairs but also in lost business. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the reasons why  annual inspections are so important.

MAINTAIN FIXTURES

Keeping an eye on interior pipes will catch small problems before they get worse. Small leaks can often go unnoticed until it’s too late. Regular inspections will make sure they’re caught early.

EXTEND LIFESPAN

Regular maintenance will help make sure that appliances last longer. Even if your business has fewer appliances than a typical home, chances are it does have a hot water heater. Regular cleaning, draining, and general maintenance on the water heater will extend its lifespan.

CONTROL LEAKS

Even a tiny drip can waste lots of water over the course of a year, a week, a day, or an hour! We already mentioned the risk of structural damage, and excess water can lead to mold issues as well. Regular inspections will check for all these issues to make sure they don’t get out of hand.

PREVENT BACKUPS

Regardless of whether it’s at a home or business, sewage backups can be gross. No one wants raw sewage backing up in the toilet, sinks, or drains. Because businesses are likely to have larger sewage systems and longer sewer lines, it’s likely that it could take longer for clogs to show up in the form of backups. Routine inspections will help monitor your pipes and make sure they’re clear.

WORTH THE CALL

Most importantly, routine inspections on your commercial plumbing equipment will tell you if repairs are needed. And if you have a growing business, that means your plumbing is probably being used for more than what it was originally intended for.
